Meanwhile, Rafael Nadal battled past an improving Stan Wawrinka, withstanding some of the Swiss player's best tennis in months.

Four-time champion Novak Djokovic advanced to the second round of the Rogers Cup men's tennis tournament with a 6-3, 7-6 (7) win over Mirza Basic on Tuesday.

Shapovalov fired nine aces and won 82 per cent of his service games in a match that, minus delays, lasted just one hour 22 minutes.

World number one Rafael Nadal is also through to the third round after beating Frenchman Benoit Paire 6-2, 6-3. "I'm really happy with the level and the way I'm moving on the practice court, and I need to find how to put it in the match". Overall, my game was so-and-so.

"I just enjoy my time here in Canada".

Greece's Stefanos Tsitsipas set up a round of 16 showdown with Djokovic by knocking off seventh-seeded Austrian Dominic Thiem 6-3 7-6 (8-6).

Third seed Juan Martin del Potro was forced to withdraw prior to his opening match due to a left wrist injury.

"I thought it went really well out there", said Polansky, who's never made it past the second round of a Rogers Cup.

Del Potro, who had a bye in the first round, was set to play Robin Haase, with the Dutchman instead facing lucky loser Mikhail Youzhny.

The 23-year-old admitted his hip injury was a concern heading to the US Open, but played doubles with Ivan Dodig later in the day, with the pair losing 6-2 6-2 to Alexander Peya and Nikola Mektić.

Basic did well to hold serve and pull ahead, but the more experienced Djokovic kept calm and booked his place in the second round, where he will face Canadian Peter Polansky.

Play was also suspended in the match between world number one Simona Halep of Romania and Russia's Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.

Shapovalov will play 14th-seeded Italian Fabio Fognini in the second round on Wednesday.
